Burcu Emeç (she/her) is a queer Kurdish-Turkish intimacy coordinator. Originally trained as an actor, she works across theatre, film, and TV as an intimacy professional.
Burcu has worked with major studios and networks like CBS, Lionsgate/Starz, and Paramount+, and is proud to be certified by two leading SAG-AFTRA accredited intimacy organizations, Intimacy Coordinators Canada and Intimacy Directors and Coordinators (U.S.). She trained with HBO’s Lead Intimacy Coordinator Alicia Rodis (The Deuce, Insecure, High Maintenance), as well as with other top intimacy professionals like Claire Warden (Three Women, Gossip Girl) and Casey Hudecki (Infinity Pool, Sex/Life).
Burcu’s experience in front of and behind the camera allows her to support actors and directors alike, bringing a robust background in movement and 10+ years in collaborative and versatile storytelling. She also serves as an additional resource with her complimentary certification as an active listener.
Aside from her work as an intimacy coordinator, Burcu is an accomplished theatre artist whose work has been supported by festivals and theatres across Canada. Throughout her practice, Burcu questions how the way artists collaborate impacts their work. This effort led her to work for several years at Articule, one of Canada’s most socially engaged artist-run centres, where she focussed on anti-harassment and anti-racist advocacy.
